In The City: Opening The Archive

During May and June, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of Sheffield is running a programme of events called ‘In The City’ - an exploration of urban existence, heritage and experience.

This week, Dr Amber Regis will be ‘Opening the Archive’. Come along and see some of the treasures held by Sheffield Archives and Local Studies Library and the University of Sheffield Special Collections. Items on display will range from the 15th to 20th centuries, from a selection of letters autographed by Mary of Queen of Scots to the catalogues produced by Painted Fabrics Ltd in the wake of World War One. Read and hold these materials, and discuss their significance with experts and archivists.
Free drop in event, no tickets required.
Friday 23 May, 1-3pm, Sheffield Archives, 52 Shoreham Street, S1 4SP
Saturday 24 May, 1-3pm, Jessop West Exhibition Space, Jessop West, S3 7RA
